Referly enables anyone to share links to products and earn rewards when the link they share results in a purchase.
We are building out rich content pages that need a lot of curation. We’re eagerly looking for someone non-technical with a sense of style and visual composition, passion for browsing the Internet for unique and interesting products, efficient and self-directed work style, and passion for learning about working in a startup. You are the kind of person who loves Gilt Groupe, used Pinterest before it was hot, and snags the best stuff on Fab.com on a regular basis.
You’ll be showcasing the best content from our community, and coming up with creative concepts of your own for various promotions and new landing pages. You’ll build tons of public-facing content that you will be able to point to at the end of your internship and say “I made that”. You’ll be blogging, talking to customers, learning about the things people love, and creating content that will help them be successful with Referly.
The ideal candidate is open to becoming more technical but doesn’t need to be technical at all to start with. You will probably have to complete repetitive tasks and we will be happy to show you how to quickly automate them. You will learn to browse files and run scripts from the command line, write formulas in spreadsheets, pull data from databases with mySQL, tweak HTML/CSS, and argue for your awesome product improvement ideas with the team.
There will also be a lot of schlepping, not because you are an intern but because that is what startups do – you’ll be cranking 24/7 alongside the team at our office in San Francisco. Between the 5 of us we’ve worked on over a dozen startups, so we’ve got lots of war stories to share.
Bonus points if you: know how SEO works, know how HTTP works, know how the fashion industry works, can fix an air conditioner with a Leatherman
